Nuacht na Scoile September 2015

E-mail Print PDF

This newsletter gives an insight into the rich environment cultivated by students and staff every day here in Coláiste/Gaelcholáiste Choilm. The school is about life enhancement - developing the potential of all through a spectrum of experiences.
The successes, levels of endeavour and performances of the past year are second to none.   We have wonderful memories of the school shows Evita and Áille agus Állta, the great achievements of the senior soccer team, the visit to Áras an Uachtaráin and much, much more.  We extend our gratitude to all who daily create the context in which every student is enabled to make the most of his or her potential.
Go raibh fada buan an traidisiún sin.
Michelle Sliney ( Principal )
